DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: My Kind of Scum

Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars customizer My Kind of Scum in his latest post over at The Star Wars Underworld.

My Kind of Scum (also known as Craig in other 'real world' circles) was born in Ohio and currently lives in Wyoming. He has been a fan of Star Wars since seeing A New Hope in theatres (meaning he's old). Over the years, his fandom has only grown through the Original Trilogy, the Prequels, releases by West End Games, and the enormous catalogue of the Expanded Universe/ Legends. The first customizing he ever did was when the POTF2 line was in its infancy. He would heat figure's joints to bend them into poses, and changed out figure heads, etc. 

Later, after seeing what other customizers were accomplishing he was fully drawn into the customizing world and has been seriously customizing ever since. Currently, he's trying to teach himself how to sculpt and to add articulation to figures so that he can take his customizing to the next level. He prefers to create his own characters and has been doing prep work for years on a photonovel series that he hopes to one day get off of the ground. He cites Star Wars customizer/photonovelist, Chewie as one of his greatest inspirations.
